Lake Excursions

During your stay at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, not living Lake Como from the water is simply not an option. Feel the lake breeze on your face, be refreshed by little splashes of water and enjoy the lake landscape from the best seat in the house. A range of boat options are available for you to pick and choose or experience all four: from Ruy and Batt, our water limousine to the battello, the lake’s traditional ferry, through to renting your own motorboat and experiencing the excitement of the seaplane. Live the thrill of the water.

Ruy and Batt

Discover the magic of the lake in exclusive style aboard Ruy or Batt, our Venetian motor launches. Tell your captain where you want to go and watch the lake must-sees, hidden gems and villas, pass by as you sip on your favourite tipple and revel in the glamour of the experience.

Ruy and Batt are also available for personalised outings so you can clink your glasses to the sunset, take a moonlit dip and much more. The lake’s the limit…


Experience the lake like a local. Residents preferred means of transport, the battello is by far the easiest way to get to nearby Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio or venture further afield for an overdose of the lake. Serving all the romantic villages clinging to the lakeshore, the battello offers frequent departure times and an authentic experience of time at the lake. The nearest pier is just a minute walk from the Palace.

Rent your boat

Rent a motorboat for the day and feel the lake breeze on your face as you stand at the helm and zip across enchanting waters lined with romantic villages and dramatic landscapes. Stop off when and where you choose to take a photo, enjoy the rays and then jump into the blue. Lap up the feeling of total freedom.

Start your discovery of Lake Como from the deck of the floating pool. No nautical licence required.
